The NULab is delighted to announce our spring calendar of events. We have some very exciting talks, conferences, workshops, and other events planned for the spring semester, organized around our year-long focus on digital storytelling. You can find additional details and registration information for these events, including the Misinformation Speaker Series co-sponsored with the Shorenstein Center, at:

These events are free and open to the public but some require registration. Guests from outside the Northeastern community who wish to attend NULab-hosted events should RSVP to Sarah Connell at sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu.
